Big Thank You


Letters to the Troops!

KMLE Country 107.9 and Legacy Traditional Schools, in conjunction with Packages from Home are encouraging the KMLE Nation to write “Thank You” letters to our Troops for the holidays this year through the BIG THANK YOU to the Troops!

It’s super-easy to send a letter to the Troops!

How to send a letter:

  • Submit a letter through the form below
  • Write a letter and e-mail it to KMLE Country 107.9 HERECLICK HERE to choose a fun letter template, or use your own!
  • Write one and drop it off or mail it to Packages from Home at 5643 N. 52nd Ave. Glendale, AZ 85301
    • They will have marked collection bins outside at both entrances/exits for a contactless drop-off of letters during normal business hours, M-F 9:00am - 3:00pm

Letter Guidlines:

  • Care packages are sent to Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Coasties, Airmen, Reservists, and everyone in between, so please use greetings and artwork that can be sent to service members from any branch of the military. For example, “Dear Hero,” “Dear Serviceperson,” and “Dear Defender of Freedom” are all great options. Thank them for their service to our great country and tell them why you are thanking them.
  • Keep your words and artwork positive, encouraging, and uplifting! If something makes you happy, chances are, it will make our troops happy, too! Be sure to thank them and please avoid political, religious, and controversial topics, as we support troops from all walks of life.
  • Speak from your heart!
  • If you like, include your email address or social media tag with your letter or artwork. Troops frequently write back when they have the time!
  • Please do not seal your letters, as Packages From Home proofreads each one before sending along with the care packages.

Once all the letters are collected, Packages from Home will be sending the letters to the Troops!

Packages From Home

Our primary purpose is to provide food, personal care, and recreational items to deployed American troops, at no cost to them.  We collect donated items from generous patriotic citizens who live all across America. These items include non-perishable food, personal toiletries, and recreational items like games, books, music CDs, and movie DVDs. A list of items needed by the troops is available on our "Things to Donate" page along with the location of "Drop Off Locations" in the greater Phoenix Arizona area where items may be donated. (No alcohol, tobacco products, pressurized containers, x-rated materials, or any other item deemed unsuitable or unsafe will ever be sent by us.) Our staff and volunteers carefully pack the donations into U.S. Post Office Flat-Rate Priority Mailboxes. The boxes are then mailed to U.S. servicemen and women who are deployed overseas in harm's way. Monetary donations go towards mailing costs and/or purchasing of special items to send to the troops
